Lydia Interview: “Remind Yourself That You Can… Shred.”


Spring is finally among us and what better way to welcome the warm weather than with concerts? New tours are announced everyday it seems, and one of our favorites, Lydia recently released the dates for their summer 2015 tour with The Early November. It will no doubt be a great pairing, but it’ll be a few weeks before the band will start performing again. But don’t fret, if you’re dying with anticipation, check out our Lydia interview for some highlights from their last tour.

We sat down with Lydia again at the tail end of 2014 to catch up on their previous year, as well as what’s to come next for the band. The band reminisced about their Illuminate tour, and revealed their favorite song to play, “One More Day.” “We’re not shredders,” Justin Camacho said, but the track allowed them all to “get shreddy.” You’re welcome for your new nick name Justin – all hail “the Shredder!”

The band is currently finishing up their next album. When we spoke with them, only a few songs had been tracked. We asked the guys who they might collaborate with –“Might call up my friend Kanye,” Leighton Antelman told us.

So far, no signs of ‘Ye on Lydia’s Instagram, but we’re still keeping our fingers crossed.
